This is a fundamental aspect of her culinary excellence that has taken her to conduct workshops and demos extensively all over the country.

When Neha first started studying, she admits she had no idea where that road would take her, unaware of the opportunities that could come her way. Her plan was to first graduate and then get into recipe creation. She realized quite quickly recipes are just a small part of this industry. Everyone can have thousands of recipes but to put life into your recipes is what makes you a true Chef.
